According to multiple reports, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson will have core muscle surgery today, performed by Dr. Bill Meyers in Philly’s Navy Yard.
John Clark of NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com reports that Jackson had a small tear to his abdominal muscle, but the muscle is “now completely torn off the bone” as a result of Sunday’s aggravation. The timeline for a recovery is over a month, so this may be the end of the season for the veteran wideout.
Pederson was asked yesyterday if he regretted playing Jackson.
“Sitting here today, you kind of go, “Alright, maybe you should have [sat him]. You’re second guessing now and we can’t — we’re in a business where we have to play and we have to play with the guys who are in uniform. Again, he busted his tail to put himself in a position to help us yesterday, and again he just felt that discomfort, so we kept him out and that’s where we are.”
